Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme by The Artsy Reader. This week’s topic is books that I refuse to let anyone touch. I love this topic – I definitely have a few books that I don’t lend out and try to keep close to home.

  1. The Fault in our Stars by John Green
  2. The Martian by Andy Weir – After I read this for the first time, I bought everyone in my family a copy so they could read it ASAP.
  3. One Day in December by Josie Silver
  4. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare – I have an Advanced Reader Copy of this book and I definitely have not let anyone borrow it.
  5. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi – Another old ARC I have that I’m pretty protective over.
  6. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer – This might be a trend, but it’s another ARC that I don’t lend out.
  7. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty – I actually accidentally destroyed my first copy (water + books isn’t a good combo).
  8. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman – Another where I’ve bought copies for friends
  9. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
  10. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

  1. I am the odd man out. I don’t seem to collect “special” books…but then I really don’t loan out books, either. If I don’t want them, I just give them away, no loans. My TTT list this week

  2. Water and books are NOT a good combo lol- as I’ve discovered once or twice, sadly. I love Big Little Lies. 🙂

  3. I cannot believe you have an ARC of Clockwork Prince! I would treasure that like my life depends on it and can totally see why you don’t lend it out! I think out of all of Cassandra Clare’s writing TDI is my favorite trilogy by her and one I have read, and will continue, to read over. It’s just such a fun story with such high rereadability.
